Follow our link to the Surrey Life site (on NiS Home Page) for a 'What's on in Surrey calendar' - just to prove we're not 'all work and no play!' Coincidentally (?) that's the title of another link box on the Home Page which takes you to some light-hearted YouTube videos if you need a two-minute break from the grindstone...

Hello friends of NiS,
How are you feeling? Now it is spring and the days are getting longer, do you have more energy or are you still feeling a bit tired?
Daily yoga practice will bring your body energy back in balance. Even if you are at work you can take a couple of minutes to practice some yoga. I have recorded a Modified Sun Salutation so if you’re busy or recovering from an injury you can do this sequence to get the energy and blood flowing.

As times goes on, it is possible to become jaded and not sure that the direction you are taking is leading to the destination you want to arrive at.
